     Sprott Management Team Shares Investment Tips in Uranium
                              Stocks
 
   Market Strategist and Portfolio Manager List 10 Best Criteria
                   for Evaluating Uranium Stocks

SARASOTA, Fla., Feb. 7, 2006 (PRIMEZONE) -- Sprott Asset Management
Market Strategist Kevin Bambrough and Portfolio Manager Jean-Francois
Tardif shared their ten best tips in evaluating uranium companies for
investment purposes. Using successful investments in various uranium
development companies as a guideline, the Sprott team told
StockInterview.com how they reached their decisions to invest in many
developing uranium companies, such as SXR Uranium One (TSE:SXR),
Paladin Resources (TSE:PDN), Western Prospector (TSX-V:WNP), Tournigan
(TSX-V:TVC), Energy Metals (TSX-V:EMC) and Strathmore Minerals
(TSX-V:STM). During the nuclear energy renaissance, and the consequent
boom in uranium stocks, Sprott Asset Management has reportedly invested
about C$175 million, or about 6.7% of the firm's more than C$2.5
billion under management, in the uranium sector. 
The ten best investment tips in choosing a uranium stock include
looking at past ownership of a uranium property, especially those which
major companies drilled during the last uranium boom and were abandoned
during the lows of the ensuing bear market; looking at the property's
infrastructure, especially its water and electricity costs to explore,
develop and mine; and finding the hidden value in a developing uranium
company, as found in the valuable databases held by Strathmore Minerals
and Energy Metals Corporation. Those were acquired from well-financed
uranium exploration companies, which spent millions drilling their
properties, during the uranium boom of the 1970s. 
Bambrough warned of risks when investing in uranium stocks during his
interview with StockInterview.com, "Personally, I think there's a lot
of speculation going on in the sector and some things maybe of lesser
quality. It's a little staggering and obviously you get a little
uncomfortable when things move up so fast." Bambrough added, "We get
comfort in investing in more of the known projects where we consider
the economics and justify the price we pay."
